49 years ago today the movie, “The Graduate,” first appeared in USA movie theaters and thus enshrined that famous line of Mr. McGuire’s about future opportunities—It is just one word, “Plastics.”  He wasn’t talking about the ocean, of course.  But he could have been.

Like most of my colleagues at The Ocean Foundation, I’m always thinking about the long game. What future are we working to achieve? How can what we do now lay the groundwork for that future?

In September 2016, the biggest cruise ship to ever make the Northwest Passage through the Arctic reached New York safely after 32 days, millions of dollars in preparations, and a huge sigh of relief from all who worried that any accident would cause even more irreparable harm than the passage itself through that vulnerable landscape.  In September 2016, we also learned that the sea ice cover had retreated to nearly its lowest extent ever.

The ocean is an opaque place in that there is still so much to learn about it. The life patterns of the great whales are also opaque—it is amazing what we still don’t know about these magnificent creatures. What we know is that the ocean is no longer theirs, and in many ways their future looks grim. The last week of September, I played a role in envisioning a more positive future at a three-day meeting about “Stories of the Whale: Past, Present and Future” organized by the Library of Congress and the International Fund for Animal Welfare.

The Ocean Foundation is the community foundation for the ocean.

Ocean Acidification is dissolving the base of the food chain in the ocean, and threatens global food security.  It is caused by the carbon emissions from our cars, planes and factories.  The Ocean Foundation has been working on OA for over 13 years.
 

At Our Ocean 2014, we launched the Friends of the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) to fund the expansion of the network.

I’ve felt the force. The force of water elevating me, pushing me, pulling me, moving me, taking me as far as the eye can see. My fascination and love for the ocean is firmly rooted in the time I spent enjoying the Gulf of Mexico on South Padre Island as a child. I would swim to the point of exhaustion and on the ride home I couldn’t help but smile and think to myself, “I can’t wait to do that again.”

This week the first cruise ship set sail for a trans-Arctic voyage, coupled with headlines that proclaimed the lowest level of Arctic sea ice recorded in the past 125 years. A three-week cruise requires a big logistical leap at the best of times—in the Arctic, it required months of planning and consultation with the US Coast Guard and other government agencies.
